Tillett B7 Full Carbon Fiber Auto Racing Seat

By Tillett

The B7 is a lightweight, high specification version of the B6 Screamer. It has the narrowest dimensions and lightest weight of any FIA 8855-1999 homologated seat. Its full carbon fiber body has it weighing in at 8.2 lbs. 

As with all Tillett seats, the B7 has a carefully contoured shape that supports the whole upper torso, leaving the shoulders free to steer the car unhindered. The body-molded support is so comfortable that the seat needs no covering at all. This not only helps with practicality on open top cars, but also allows a much lower driving position than a seat with a thick foam cushion.

The 44 cm (Edges On) version retains an aesthetically pleasing smooth rolled edge around the leg area. The narrower 40 cm (Edges Off) version is for cars where there are fitment issues and a narrower seat is necessary. The two models are the same size internally and are both homologated.

All B7 seats come with a Dinamica® suede-covered headrest pad. Matching back and cushion pads are available as an add-on option, which add about about 1 kg of weight.

There are four bracket options to use for installing the seat:

  • TB FIA mounting brackets which have been tested with the seat. These brackets are immensely strong and beautifully machined and recommended as the install method.
  • TB F1 brackets are made from 6 mm thick anodized aluminium and point inwards under the seat.
  • TB F5 brackets are made from the same 6 mm high grade anodised aluminium like the TB F1 but which point outwards away from the seat.
  • TB5 is a powder coated 5 mm thick aluminium version of the outward pointing TB F5.
